Public Health England (PHE) - Call for Evidence

Closed 24 Jun 2016

Opened 12 May 2016

Overview

Purpose of the Review

The Department of Health routinely holds PHE to account in line with the Department of Health accountability framework and, as noted above, this review is part of a wider programme that the Department has developed as part of its stewardship and assurance function. The review will look in particular at:

  • Performance and effectiveness: including setting of priorities, assessment of performance, Public Health England (PHE) structure and stakeholder engagement.
  • Efficiency: including digitisation, use of estate, and procurement/contract costs.
  • Governance: including board effectiveness and strategic planning.

This Tailored Review will aim to take full account of any previous reviews or analysis, such as internal audits, NAO reports or Health Select Committee inquiries. The review will seek to take full account of such work and to avoid duplicating effort or imposing unnecessary burdens.

The views of stakeholders are a vital source of evidence to support analysis. This Call for Evidence seeks views from respondents to assist its consideration of the areas of focus for the review.

Timeline

The Tailored Review commenced on 20 April 2016 and is expected to conclude in autumn 2016. A copy of the final report will be published on the Department of Health pages on gov.uk.

Responding to the call for evidence

In order to conduct the review in an open and transparent manner and ensure that the findings are rigorous and evidence-based, the review team is seeking the views of a wide range of stakeholders. We are interested in the views of individuals and organisations that engage with PHE or have a wider interest in its operations.

The call for evidence is running from 12 May to 24 June 2016. Responses can be provided by completing the online questionnaire below.

The review team will also accept responses or material in different forms provided it is relevant to the purpose of the review (detailed above) and/or the questions in this survey. The review team is unable to respond to individual cases or consider complaints other than as part of the evidence for the review where it falls within the terms of reference.
